"Dignity without compromise"
Rosalee Lawless, 80, of Okmulgee, was born June 5, 1922 in Abilene, TX. In 1992 she moved from Gilbert, AZ to Okmulgee. She resided with her daughter Laura J. Love and husband Ray Love of Okmulgee. She went very peacefully and moved from our home to be at home with her Lord and Savior on January 4, 2003.
Rosalee Lawless (Granny) was the little elderly lady who made her way through Wal-Mart paying compliments to everyone she spoke with. She loved to play practical jokes on everyone she would meet. It didnít matter who you are or what you look like or what Nationality you were. She would always let folks know she loved them. But most important she always let folks know that "God loves you and you need to put all your trust in Him." Her strongest desire was to make God Very, Very, Happy.
Mrs. Lawless was preceded in death by her husband Louis Cleatus Lawless.
